    Not I - though I do window shop there after hours.

    The inestimably knowledgable Wayne Ausbrooks has been in HC a few times, but to the best of my knowledge, though he has admired many a car in stock, has not purchased a vehicle as he has other priorities at this time.

    A friend of mine has bought two. They sell cars of impeccable quality. The owner started out with change in his pocket as a used car salesman and worked up his way to a used car lot. And now... Heritage Classics. He knows his stuff and his mechanics do a lot of work in house. I've been in the back to see some of their work first hand for hours, they are very reputable. I have not bought from them myself - they really cater to the unique, garage queens, or nut and bolt restorations. What they carry are the best examples of what you can find.

    Sunny is right, their cars are gorgeous, though they definitely cater more twaords the show cars and restorations. I dont see many modern cars in ther inventory. They have quite a book store there too :)

    I'm glad to see Sunny weigh in with how Heritage got it's start. It seems I can never make it there during business hours, but check the site and the windows in the wee hours, as mentioned before. Somehow, I think this'll be the place I'll pick up at least one keeper.

    Jordan mentioned the bookstore - which is to die for, and the modern inventory. Actually, the modern stuff has picked up a bit of pace: In the last month, I've seen a 456 - a 550 a 348 spyder (lovely in graphite) and a couple of Aston's all come and go.
    Older inventory has moved quite a bit as well - several Alfa Romeos, Astons, a lambo 400 gt along with a couple of Porsche 356's and a pair of Ferrari 275 GTS's have disappeared in the last 2 months - along with a GTO to die for.

    What else... Lambo LM002, a Boxer - a couple of Mondials. One thing is for certain - business picked up quite a bit since Ah-nold became Guv, as inventory wasn't moving so briskly during the summer.
